telling you this is a very unique city. and i continue to be so enthralled by the wonderful people who live here, that work here, even though i finished the ninth of tin budget town hall meetings, numerous meetings with community-based agencies, inviting people who have not been there for years, as they tell me. i am hearing so many stories, stories about white people came to san francisco. and just -- about why people came to san francisco. and just so many stories about whether or not their dreams or conditions were fulfilled, or they are here working were living with their families or they are trying to conduct business here. it has been wonderful. a lot of people have been asking -- i really -- to i really enjoy it? the word " julyenjoy -- "enjoy" is a little strong. i set out on a commitment that i would do this for a year. i made a commitment i would try my best to unify the city and then set out to do at least five priorities. at least one of them has been fully accomplished, but the five priorities were budget, balancing the city's budget. we still have a $306 million gap.

thrilled to have all of these people joining us. seven out of 10 people in the city now bicycle. it may be people like me who ride every day, or it may be people who just want to ride one day a month or so. that is wonderful. what we are experiencing across the board, though, is less than safe conditions on the streets. one of the top icomplaints thati hear are complaints about the pot holes. just as high as we were about traffic moving too fast. right up there in the top three is that fear of paul's. it is a very unsafe condition. i know that on my own ride home, i need to dodge them. this is also a great opportunity not just to bring our streets back up to par, which we must do, not only for economic but safety reasons, but also to go to great streets. we can make some of our good streets into great streets. we have seen this on a valencia, in the mission corridor. we want to make sure that walking, biking, transit all have a wonderful experience in the community. we are happy to be supporting this. thank you.

think if you have diversity in the city of san francisco and you identify the racial background of the person who complains, he should also have these documents related to the policeman on the other side. the occ has not complied with any requests that i have made since last year. it is getting a little tiring. we are all in the same city. two is that even though occ complaints have gone down, i don't have that on any reflection of occ themselves. that is more likely on the policeman doing a better job in terms of communicating with the public at large. and i think that is the issue. so i address you in this particular case that i would like those documents, as requested. ms. hicks has my letters. she should bring them forward. so that i can close my case without any further inquiry in terms of what the actual numbers are and what the actual official documents are. because i think my whole case, since ms. hicks lost the documents twice, the investigator lost the documents for the third time, when i stood before the police commission, there something a little funny that took place at oc

values in the city. in addition to reflecting our values, i do think this budget also represents a lot of hope. because our city is now on the rebound already, and i can feel that you can all feel it here, just in the span of six months, we began this year with a tremendous challenge in our unemployment rate, being over 10% -- 10.1% as of january. today, the unemployment rate has gone down to 8.5%. we also recognize that our city has grown in the last 10 years, by over 3%, from 776,000 to now over 805,000, and that is just residents alone. we continue to attract major companies in this city, companies who want to be here. they want to be your as partners and collaborators and, as we suggest, they want to hire san franciscans. we want to meet that challenge and we want to work with them. at the beginning of this budget, made a commitment to myself that i would do my best to listen to every part of this city, to all the neighborhoods, to the supervisors, and to the corridors that we held compound meetings at. not only what i want to listen to them, ultimately, as the impact of us, my challe

and great city hall staff? i have to tell you, we have been together all day. we have watched a good portion of district 5 in the fillmore, in and around the area, and i have to say how ratifying it was to be with the mayor in the fillmore, talking about truancy, talking about public safety, talking with da gascon, and we want to get down to brass tacks issues, not as public safety, but the root causes of job placement, giving our youth something to aspire to, giving an adult something they can turn to, being able to reach out. that is what tonight is part of. it is not just but district 5, but citywide. we are facing the fifth year. there is a chronic budget deficit, or fourth year. it feels like the fourth year. we have navigated the budget in previous years. the difference in those years, there it is federal and state help. those deficits were considerably more than the local deficit we are facing now. the difference is that safety net that we would sometimes depend on from the federal and state government is not there now. san francisco is very much on its own. i have a hope
